Ooh, Thanks, An Award, Must Nominate some Great Writers…


Thank you to Thomas Cotterill for awarding me this.

Thomas Cotterill who’s blog is always fascinating, and which is guaranteed to exercise your mind http://thomascotterill.wordpress.com/

having kindly awarded me this, I can pass on the favour.

Well, first has to be my writing partner, Jo Danilo. She made me do a fair number of rewrites – particularly about those fight scenes – and she was so right! I can never thank her enough.
She has written some exceptional paranormal YA, including ‘The Curtain Twitchers’ and ‘11.32’ .

She is exceptional in having been able to write such excellent books, for she works full time and has a young family too and has even trained to rescue whales and conservation issues besides. Her blog is:- http://mymykerikeri.wordpress.com/

Then, there is Rebecca Lochlann, whose brilliant series ‘Child of the Erinyes’ has not long been out.  I said from when I first started on ‘The Year God’s Daughter’ that these were potential classics. http://rebeccalochlann.wordpress.com/

Then, there is Anne Carlisle. I had to nominate her for her heroine alone, although the rest of the book ‘The Fire Night Ball’ just happens to be a great, exciting read.

How many main female characters in current novels are the ones who make the jokes?  But Marlena Mae Bellum is not only a siren with waist length red hair and an hour glass figure, a sharp business woman and a witch by virtue of her hereditary, she’s also a wonderful wit. http://www.annehcarlislephd.com/Home_Page.html

Also, Lauryn April.  Her book ‘Into the Deep’ written for YA but a delightful read for any age, shows much insight in the linking of the psychic and the psychological, and combining the paranormal with an everyday school setting. I loved those characters, Lauryn!http://laurynapril.blogspot.co.uk

Very likely these writers have got the award already, but just in case.

Keep on writing that wonderful stuff…

Finally, I would like to nominate Tersia for a blog harrowing and courageous, which faces issues we will all have to face at some point in our lives.

About Lucinda Elliot

Writer of Gothic comedy, my ebook 'That Scoundrel Emile Dubois' came out in August and is available on Amazon. 'When young Sophie de Courcy, bored but patient companion to the Countess of Ruthin, agrees to marry her long-time hero, dashing French rogue Emile Dubois, she is catapulted into a dangerous world of Man Vampires and Time Warps. With the help of Agnes, her no nonsense, tarot-reading Welsh maid, she must come to terms with her new husband’s scandalous past, defeat the evil Vampire neighbours and rescue Emile from the machinations of time which threaten to destroy their new found love. All this in just one book! Scoundrel is an entertaining, over-the-top Gothic adventure, alive with colourful character comedy as it flits between Revolutionary France and misty Wales.' Based in mid Wales, once living and worked in London for years, I am fond of weight training, was long ago a champion Sportsfighter, I am a fully paid up, card holding English classics geek and love a laugh...

    You are wonderful and I love you xxx
    Thanks, once again, for nominating me! If I had more time to network and make more writer friends I could pass on some nominations of my own, but there you go…!
    Well done on a brilliant blog, Lucinda, and a fantastic book too :-)

    • Love you too, Jo! xxx.

      You deserve to become a multi millionaire so that you only need work outside the home in writing from your yacht anchored off the coast of Southern France, and starting a publishing company, of which I would be a client…
